If you are interested in learning more, check out this episode with Jill McClennen.  Jill is a certified Death Doula (which is a non-medical person trained to care for someone holistically at the end of life).  She offers support, preparation, and soul-level healing to her clients in person and virtually through her work as a death doula and end-of-life coach.  In addition to being a death doula, Jill is a trauma-sensitive yoga instructor, and she also uses reiki and shamanic healing techniques to help her clients heal their fears around death and dying as well as work with their grief.  

Her path to becoming a death doula started when she moved home to NJ from CA and cared for her 90-year-old Grandmother at the end of her life. When she was faced with the fact that her grandmother was dying, she felt confused and overwhelmed because she didn’t understand what caring for someone at the end of their life would be like.  She didn’t know what to expect and did not understand what was going on with her grandmother as she got closer to death.  Now Jill helps families navigate the end of life.
